In psychology, a first impression is the event when one person first encounters another person and forms a mental image of that person. Seeing a house for the first time also creates a similar picture in the mind.
So what is your house saying? Think about it for a moment.
What could you do to increase value in a way that won't break the bank. Here are five simple, affordable changes to spruce things up!
Wipe your Feet!
A nice door mat is not only practical but it also pulls the whole look together by anchoring it and visually balancing the overall look. There are so many to choose from at all different price points. So find one that suits you.
Your Address Matters
Make sure you have a nice address plate. It is the very first thing people look for when finding your place!
Having a nice porch light will not only help you see at night and prevent accidents but it can also be used to create ambience.
Add a Touch of Green!
Nothing says Welcome like a nice flower box. You can always spray paint an old pot to give it a fresh look and plant away. Remember scale is important so keep it in proportion.
Paint it Black!
Did you know that by painting your door black you can increase your property value?!
It's true. Black shows sophistication and strength. This bold door shows a presence of authority. It also looks great on a variety of different style homes and can really make hardware pop.
If you need another reason to consider changing, a recent survey suggested that by paining your door black can earn you up to 6K more.
